The Greek legend tells that in the past there were three sisters, the Gorgonians: Medusa, Euryale and Stheno. Medusa was the most beautiful of the three, with beautiful blue eyes and blond hair reminiscent of wheat fields. Poseidon, Greek god, fell in love with Medusa and made her spend a night in the temple of Athena. The goddess became angry and transformed Medusa into a hideous monster capable of turning anyone who looks at her into a stone statue. The young Perseus became evil and went to kill Medusa. It is said that the blood flowed and spilled into the sea, born the Red Coral.
